Indeed, I also thought Pacquiao looked the best he has in a very long time. Though, I don't think Marquez tried any different strategy. He did his usual counter punching and couldn't compete well enough in the rounds because of Pacquiao's consistent head movement. If you notice, the only time he started to look good is when Pacquiao hurt him and got reckless, clearly that's because he had a lot of openings to counter.
